Folks,

Please excuse my ignorance (again). I'd like to understand the function of the clutch micro-switch. And does it need to engaged all the way to perform its function properly? Reason I ask..........I changed my clutch fluid and was looking at the switch and how the "plunger" engages it. When the clutch lever is set at #1 (all the way out), it engages the switch all the way in when the lever is pulled completely. When it's set on #4, it engages it only about 1/2 way when the clutch lever is pulled all the way.

Many thanks,
John

On the V7C, the clutch micro switch is there to prevent ignition if one forgets to pull the clutch in when starting. You guys don't have that bug/feature.

2 functions I know of. 1 is for start up and having to pull the clutch in to start, the other is to give a slight bump in RPM as you release the clutch to help prevent stalling. At least on my 1100 GRiSO and 1200Sport.

OMG really wtf like Guzzi riders can't avoid stalling without help from a 14 year old code writer in his darkened bedroom??

Pretty typical with all FI vehicles, nothing to do with Guzzi

Bike will start in gear with the clutch lever pulled and side stand down but kills engine if the clutch is then released with the stand still down.

eeyore, thank you. Forgot about that stuff........
I was also wondering how much the switch needs to be engaged but I can figure that out on my own.
Thanks again!

IIRC Guzzidiag will tell you if your clutch is engaged/ disengaged. You could hook it up and play with the lever to determine at what point the switch is triggered.
